Although I'm in favor of making up our own minds, especially related to phenomena of mind, space and time that are mysterious and largely unexplainable to an audience of more than 2, as factual proof, there's much misunderstanding about Aleister Crowley.
I've found his Tarot deck many years ago, in a 2nd hand shop and felt the illustrations quite accurate and no negative energy was felt by me around the deck. Aleister seems to have been a man who felt great interest in the spiritual world, the powers of the spirit as well. I believe he was genuine when he started on his quest and his imagination and, possibly, his psychic nature, may have drawn him to explore practices of magic, working with certain energies, that weren't really at his command due to inexperience and a rather boundless hunger for experience without awareness of the forces he encountered. Aleister may have entered a state where he was ruled by these forces, rather than being the ruler of his experiments and explorations. Isn't it true that a learning process requires embodiment of knowledge supported by the passing of time?
In order to find balance in one's energy system and the use of the senses? Aleister may have had a wild streak in his nature, that has led him astray, losing the steering wheel in his life as a psychic researcher and practitioner of spiritual and magical workings. Unbridledness? Accompanied by entities of an astral realm? Magic isn't a child's game.
He may have started in an authentic search and later he may have entered uncharted territory that drew him with as much temptation as it baffled him. You know, that mixed thrill of fear and pleasure we experience as children when confronted with mystery or suspense?
